Asshur_(Son of Shem)
- Ashur, was the second son of Shem, the son of Noah. Ashur's brothers were Elam, Aram, Arpachshad and Lud. The Hebrew text of Genesis 10:11 is somewhat ambiguous as to whether it was Ashur himself (eg. as reads the KJV), or Nimrod (as in some other English translations) who built the cities of Nineveh, Resen, Rehoboth-Ir and Calah in Assyria, since the name Ashur can refer to either the person or the country.
